The Rural Woman Podcast Episode 80 – Diversification and Direct Marketing with Dahlia Dill


On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll meet Dahlia Dill. Dahlia grew up on both a dairy farm, and a full time farm where her parents raised grass fed Belted Galloway beef cattle, produced hay, and grew market gardens for cut flowers in Lee, New Hampshire. Dahlia and her husband, Mark,  both attended the University of New Hampshire for agricultural studies, and during and after, held many jobs that contributed to their ability to launch their own farm business. Dahlia shares with us the competitive process that they underwent to obtain their now farm Chandler Pond Farm located  in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. They have made Chandler Pond Farm their own where they are raising 100% grass fed beef, naturally raised pick your own strawberries and blueberries, PYO flowers, maple syrup, hay,  a smattering of vegetables.

Inspiring and Motivating

“I came across this podcast last week after going through some really bad days and trying to find my purpose. I listened to a lot of the podcasts already but the episode with Kristen , really inspired me and gave me the push to try some cut flowers for farmers market this upcoming year. Brought a few tears my eyes too! Flowers really do hold so many memories and make people feel good! They remind us of a special someone close and brings a smile to many . Thanks for sharing your great advice! All the female farmers are so inspiring on this podcast !! Keep up the good work .”
